Book Description

2 Sep 2011
A practical guide to preparing for the next phase of the financial meltdown From the authors who were the first to predict Phase I of our current economic downturn–in their landmark 2006 book, America′s Bubble Economy –comes their insightful sequel discussing their predictions for the next phase of the Bubble Economy. It may seem like the worst has come and gone, but it hasn′t. With their proven track record of accurate predictions–which most financial professionals and economists missed–the authors explain how and why the next phase of the financial meltdown is about to hit. Things are not going back to how they were before. Instead, we are moving through uncharted territory, with new challenges and opportunities that few people can anticipate. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Aftershock shows readers how to seek safety and profits in these dynamic economic conditions. Discusses how to protect assets, businesses, and jobs before and during the second wave of financial meltdown Provides clear and accurate advice on how to profit from the collapsing bubbles Offer focused guidance regarding real estate, which will continue to be a pressing concern for many The authors′ first book was chosen by Kiplinger′s as one of the 30 Best Business Books of 2006, and its accuracy has been hailed by Paul Farrell of Dow Jones MarketWatch when he said "America′s Bubble Economy′s Predictions, though ignored, were accurate." Don′t miss out on these time tested author′s proven advice for how to mange your money during the coming financial meltdown.

Product Description

From the Author

1. Isn’t the economy recovering now? Why worry about an Aftershock?
It may look like a recovery but this is really a fake recovery, driven by printing money and massive government borrowing that are temporarily slowing the fall of our multi-bubble economy. We are just kicking our problems down the road and making the future Aftershock that much worse.

2. How is the second edition of Aftershock different from the first edition?
The new Aftershock is more than 35% updated and contains our latest analysis of the current economy, plus our forecasts for 2012 and beyond. There are two entirely new chapters that you won't want to miss, especially the one on how the Federal Reserve's medicine will become a poison when thier program of quantitative easing eventually causes dangerous inflation and rising interest rates ahead. Future inflation is the single biggest threat to the economy and to your stocks, bonds, real estate, and cash. Throughout the new Aftershock, we show you how future inflation will damage the already falling bubble economy and what to do to protect yourself and your assets when it hits. There will even be a few ways to make money on inflation--but only if you see it coming. 

3. How is this book any different from all the rest?
Aftershock is the only book to correctly predict the economic mess we are in today and foresee what is next, based on a proven macroeconomic view of the evolving global economy

4. What will be some of the first signs of the coming Aftershock?
Actually, it's already happening now, but it isn't easy to see unless you know what to look for. The second edition of Aftershock explains in detail what is ahead, how to see it coming, and what to do about it right now, while there's still time to protect yourself.

5. Have we seen the “aftershock” of the 2008 market meltdown yet? If not, when do you predict we will see its effects?
No we haven’t seen the “aftershock” of the 2008 market meltdown. We will see it when inflation nears 10%, which is likely about 2 – 3 years away.

From the Inside Flap

From the authors who accurately predicted the domino fall of the conjoined real estate, stock, and private debt bubbles that led to the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009, now comes the definitive look at what is still ahead in 2012 and beyond—and what investors can do right now to protect themselves. Based on the authors′ unmatched track record of precise predictions in the two landmark books America′s Bubble Economy and Aftershock , this Second Edition of Aftershock updates the original book by more than 35 percent with fresh analysis of the latest economic developments, plus offers new in–depth advice for how readers can prepare now for protection and profits in the next global money meltdown. The second edition of Aftershock shows readers: Why the latest actions by the U.S. Federal Reserve will eventually damage the dollar and hurt investors worldwide How future rising inflation and interest rates will harm your specific investments, and what to do about it The future fall of China′s bubble economy, as well as current and future problems with European debt Detailed investment advice about real estate, retirement, annuities, life insurance, and much more What′s next for stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities, and other assets How to buy and own gold and silver before, during, and after the coming Aftershock

3.0 out of 5 stars depressing, scary 17 Dec 2012
By charlie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is scary and depressing. It suggests asset allocation for a future of a financial nuclear winter. Regrettably the book is poorly written, repetitive and wordy; but to give the writers credit, they are not professional authors, but financial advisors who are trying their best to lay out a future scenario which they believe is inevitable. In the end it all depends on who you trust. The Central Bankers or the Financial Advisors who wrote this book. Not a great choice really - but they make their case well, if not wordily. I believe them. Many won't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aftershock 29 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book takes the view (like Mr George Soros) that there no way out of the present financial crisis, the final crunch can only be delayed. Quantitative easing merely stacks up more trouble for the future. The authors recommend where to put your investments to maximise how much you retain at the end. Depressing read, but could be right.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In an easy to understand way, the authors explain where the economy is at now, how we got here and where we are heading. The advice given ref how to protect ourselves or even profit from the crisis, comes from people with a proven record of successful predictions. This book needs to be translated in many languages! The only thing is: is the translation going to be ready by the time the "tsunami" hits?
